Description

Writing 160: Multimodal Composition is a first-year writing requirement course that emphasizes an individualized approach to writing in a small seminar setting with frequent student-teacher conferences. It is designed to give you practice communicating in a variety of social situations and media, as well as opportunities to explore your own interests and ambitions as a writer. Our section will pursue these goals under the broad theme of writing and/about/as remix. We will read and analyze cultural products that remix, mash up, adapt, or receive earlier works and different traditions. You will be invited to remix and combine sensory modes, linguistic codes, and/or media in your own compositions. And we will strive to remix our ideas about writing in order to challenge assumptions about language and literacy, especially at the university, through an anti-racist, intersectional lens.

Course Requirements:

Come to class meetings prepared to engage in activities designed to promote multimodal composition skills. Complete 3-4 writing projects and develop awareness of your own writing processes. Engage in peer review and provide feedback to other students about their writing. Meet individually and in small groups with the instructor.


Writing 160 meets the First-Year-Writing Requirement.

Intended Audience:

Students who want to meet the first-year writing requirement with additional one-on-one support from the instructor. Students with an interest in writing in a range of modes and media.

Class Format:

A mix of discussion, interactive and hands-on writing activities, maker labs, drafting, peer review, and purposeful revision. 

 

You will also be meeting regularly with your instructor for personalized writing instruction. 


Writing 160 engages anti-racist teaching practices.
